Luxi Chen (She/her)
I could now confidently introduce myself as a product designer, graduating from MSc PDE of GSA this year, being skilled in user centred design, design thinking, product design engineering and concept communicating techniques. I have a passion for both the design field and humanities, social, cultural studies. I do adhere to the responsibility and status of designers in the close relationship between humanities and design, which can also be seen as the reason I tabled the proposal of focusing on the living experience of visual impaired people for my major project. I aimed to keep targeting toward detailed actual user requirements and humanity values apart from simply being a visionary, which would always be my design philosophy.
People with visual impairments has taken up a huge part of population. Lives of this group, especially those live alone, have always been a huge topic. For those people, the cooking process is now reached still mostly relying on personal experiences and additional assistance. Safety during cooking has been seriously focused on as a basic requirement, while no more details focused.
Legibilis (late Latin “that can be read”) is a set of products combined with innovated seasoning package and an accompanied
smart storage, which reduces complexity of the measuring process during cooking and provides nevigation to ensure accuracy.
This is a project focusing on human factors for visual impaired people, while also being inclusive to meet various scenarios.
